to forehead with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. for several minutes the two leaders, allegedly this frosty relationship, joking, laughing, talking, covering their mouths to make sure those with cameras couldn't figure out what they were saying. this the latest in several scenes where both of the leaders, maybe they're acting but they are very good actors if they are. they have made a clear decision to try to get along better as they move on to the long list of challenges. as the trip wraps up in the morning if there is a risk for the president it's this. he came in with low expectations and may have raised expectations and hopes too high. you've covered this issue for many years. the president talking to young israelis today demanding they challenge their leadership and old ways of blocking obstacles to the peace process the president saying he thinks it is possible, promising he'll make a personal commitment to get the parties back to the table. if you look at the obstacles whether rockets from hamas, continued building in israeli settlements, hard to see a peace process any t

in jerusalem this afternoon. he spoke alongside benjamin netanyahu. just a day after both the syrian regime and the syrian rebels accused each other of deploying chemical weapons. now, so far u.s. officials say they have no evidence that those accusations are true on either side. but president obama says he is deeply skeptical that of any claim that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons at all. he did not say the same of the syrian regime. we have team fox cor-j tonight. first our chief white house correspondent ed henry who is traveling with the president in israel. it was notable today that the president seemed to walk right up to the line of threatening military action. >> shep, he certainly did, because the stakes are enormous tonight. all the way there in new york where you are. the u.n. security council tonight behind closed doors, ambassadors from around the world, went behind closed doors to discuss the syrian chemical weapons situation. as you noted, it also dominated here in jerusalem. the press conference the president had with the israeli prime minister. he made very clear
thing benjamin netanyahu said and the first question the president got. first was about iran and the first question the president got was about syria. these are two big looming questions, especially for israel, which they see, it seems, as a more immediate problem than often the u.s. has indicated. >> warner: i think with prime minister netanyahi and the president acknowledged that, it's almost-- i mean, it's much more in the neighborhood of iran. let's take iran first. but that it's really because of israel's less-developed military capabilities that if military action needs to be taken and the prime minister made clear today israel is not going to subcontract its security out to anyone, that it has a shorter window to act. that said, they also actually have a difference on when the point will come at which iran will be so far along with the number of cent rifortunatelies it has and enriched uranium, no one can stop it from getting a nuclear weapon. a moment will come in which iran can say we're leave the i.a.e.a., close the doors, and it would take three weeks. one, yes, th
will revisit with prime minister of israel benjamin netanyahu a couple days from now as they try to begin that new conversation in earnest. just a short time ago on this his second day here in israel, the president did a little of cultural stops, going to israel museum where he saw what are referred to as the dead sea scrolls. these are ancient hebrew text that sort of highlight the connection between the jewish people and this land here. the state of israel. but during the conversation with reporters yesterday, the president once again showed that he has israel's back. that's the exact language that he used on the topic of iran. he said that he will do whatever is necessary to prevent iran from getting its hands on nuclear weapons. he referred to them as the world's worst weapons. >> all right, peter alexander, thank you. >>> all day long, stay with nbc for complete coverage of president obama's historic trip to the middle east. >>> a new report this morning is sounding the alarm on the intelligence community. this morning's "washington post" claims u.s. spy agencies are dropping the bal
a moment. first, praise for and thanks to president obama from the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu, for continued support. president said there's time for diplomacy in talks with iran over nuclear weapons. the president says he'll do anything necessary to keep iran from getting the bomb then prime minister netanyahu says he's convince president obama is determined to keep iran from getting the bomb, no daylight between the two of them on that. president obama says there's, quote, not a lot of daylight between the united states and israel on their assessments of iran's nuclear progress. they're about a year from getting a bomb if they want it. the prime minister echoed those statements, agreeing with that. so of all of this talk of division between the two and problems behind the scenes, none of that evident today. very little daylight. ed henry is traveling with the president and is live in jerusalem. a lot of talk about the reports of chemical weapons being used in syria and the definition of chemical weapons varies between ours here and there's over there. >> it does. t
that benjamin netanyahu wants to act. i think he wants to make iran in large part our responsibility because it is, in our interests, to prevent iran from acquiring not just the weapons but the capacity to produce the weapon. so i think, for a war-time president who frankly has done more at least to extricate america from two wars it could not possibly win where the standard for victory was never, could we win but when could we leave i think it is unfair to prejudge him so early on. jon: ambassador bolton, take on some of those points. >> well, it is not prejudging him. look what he has done in his first four years. he is so desperate to avoid using military force that we have on the table right now, the latest in a long succession of diplomatic offers to iran which if the iranians simply milk a little bit more out of the europeans and the white house, i think there will be prepared to accept, that will in effect legitimatize the iranian nuclear weapons program. it will legitimatize their uranium enrichment, contrary to six years of u.n. security council sanctions, we have a position that is
smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a couple of key questions. does the president of the united states lay out any timetable for his effort to resume peace process? i expect the answer to that is no. he will say there's more foundation building. what does president abbas say about his willingness to come back to the table? right now he says he will only come back if israel meets certain conditions, chief among them, stop iping settlement construction in the west bank. construction is under way. and that construction has accelerated because president netanyahu was made at the united nations for recognizing, essentially, a palestinian state. that is a poke in the eye of the palestinians. it's also a poke in the eye, by the way, at the president of the united states, who has urged president netanyahu not to do that. it was very interesting yesterday. the pre
benjamin netanyahu issuing a stunning apology to the turkish prime minister for this, an israeli commando attack that killed nine people on a gaza bound flotilla nearly three years ago. our senior international correspondent ivan watson is now joining us from amman, jordan. your base in turkey right now. i have to tell you for all of the things the president may have done over the past 48, 72 hours on this trip to the middle east, clearly the most productive is healing this, at least getting the start of a healing process between these two u.s. allies, turkey and israel. >> certainly president obama putting a diplomatic feather in his cap by basically getting these two very important middle eastern allies of the u.s., turkey and israel, to talk to each other. the two prime ministers in a phone call, prime minister benjamin netanyahu of israel calling his turkish counterpart from the tarmac basically of the airport with the u.s. president alongside him and basically bringing an end to nearly three years of ruptured relations between these two very important middle eastern powers. the israe
benjamin netanyahu there, that they reportedly have an icy relationship, but perhaps this will help mend some fences between those two. it has been said that the president is not there to try to forward the peace process officially, but he is just making basically an appearance there and talking directly to the israeli people. >> steve: the problem for the president right now is the israeli people for the most part don't trust him because they don't trust him to take care of iran, which wants to blow up the jewish state. >> brian: right. but also you have to look at netanyahu who is having trouble of his on. he just put together a government this week, last week. they wanted to get that done before he got here and they got to talk number one about iran, number two about iran. and i think syria has to come up and i think they have to be worried about hezbollah to their right. >> alisyn: they need each other. the president, president obama and benjamin netanyahu need each other. we need to have a good relationship between these two countries. netanyahu famously was close to mitt romney. th
in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us su
with benjamin netanyahu. he was even joking about red lines. but the issue couldn't be more serious, the real red line is the one netanyahu talked about at the united nations last fall. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: the point where iran must be attacked or it will be able to build a nuclear bomb. a red line israelis believe could be crossed within months. the issue was front and center here in all of the president's meetings. >> diplomacy and sanctions so far have not stopped iran's nuclear program. in order to stop iran's nuclear program peacefully, diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by clear, credible threat of military action. >> reporter: the president said he believes there is time for diplomacy. but -- >> the united states will continue to consult closely with israel, on next steps, and i will repeat, all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> reporter: iranian missiles like this one they tested in january can reach israel in less than ten minutes. catastrophic if armed with nuclea
/palestinian conflict that prime minister benjamin netanyahu is redrawing the map. settlement expansion in 2012 was almost five times the rate of 2010. netanyahu's first full year in office. critics call it proof the prime minister wants to make it impossible to map out a contiguous palestinian state. president obama won't go that far but says any construction is an obstacle to peace talks. eve harrow says it is the president who is blocking progress. >> he has made the palestinian authority more intransigent. they can't say we'll talk to the israelis while they're building settlements if the american president has said it's a problem. >>he left los angeles to join the movement 25 years ago. like many here israelis and palestinians she worries tensions are rising. >> we feel it here on the roads here, definitely. that there is an upswing in the violence. but i don't think that the settlements are the reason for the tension. >> the palestinians and the visiting american president disagree but this new school is proof the israeli government at least for now isn't listening. no mention again from
